 ravenhead.org A&P - The Muscular System
Muscles contract because of nerve impulses originating in the brain, and each muscle has nefferent nerve associated with it (eg: the radial nerve stimulates the brachioradialis).
The origin of a muscle is the end which does not move in contraction, and the insertion is the end of the muscle which moves in contraction.
A sprain is an injury or damage to a joint resulting in swelling whereas a strain is an injury to a muscle or its tendon which may occasionally involve rupture of muscle fibres, muscle sheath or tendon.

 MUSCLE AND NERVE - LoveToKnow Article on MUSCLE AND NERVE
Yet when the muscular contraction is taken as rndex of the response of the nerve, it is found that unmistakable signs of fatigue appear even very soon after commencement of the excitation of the nerve, and the muscle ceases to give any contraction in response to stimuli applied indirectly to it through its nerve.
The muscular wall of the blood-vessels also exhibits tonic contraction, which, however, seems to be mainly traceable to a continual excitation of the muscle cells by nervous influence conveyed to them along their nerves, and originating in the great vaso motor centre in the bulb.
A form of contraction intermediate in character between the tonic and the rhythmic is met in the auricle of the heart of the toad.

 Nerve Agents
Muscular paralysis caused by nerve agents also affects the respiratory muscles.
Nerve agents acquired their name because they affect the transmission of nerve impulses in the nervous system.
Binary technology implies that the final stage in the synthesis of the nerve agent is moved from the factory into the warhead, which thus functions as a chemical reactor.

 NERVE - LoveToKnow Article on NERVE
The anterior tibial nerve is chiefly muscular, innervating the muscles in front of the tibia and fibula as well as the extensor brevis digitorum pedis on the dorsum of the foot, though it gives one small cutaneous branch to the cleft between the first and second toes.
The nerve is attached to the spinal cord by two roots, of which the ventral is purely efferent or motor and the dorsal purely afferent or sensory.
The optic nerve passes through the optic foramen in the skull into the orbit, where it is penetrated by the central artery of the retina, and eventually pierces the scelerotic just internal to the posterior pole of the eyeball.

 Efferent nerve - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The motor nerves are efferent nerves involved in muscular control.The cell body of the efferent neuron is found in the central nervous system, where it is connected to a single,long axon and several short dendrons projecting out of the cell body itself.
In the nervous system, efferent nerves otherwise known as motor or effector neuron carry nerve impulses away from the central nervous systemto effectors - either muscles or glands.
This axon then forms a neuromuscular junction with the effectors.The cell body of the motor neuron is satellite-shaped.

 highmediannerve
Provocative testing of the median nerve for proximal entrapment is extremely useful because it is hypothesized that the compression of the nerve relates to both the position of the forearm and muscular contraction.
The median nerve is formed along the lateral wall of the axilla by the confluence of the medial and lateral cords of the brachial plexus.
The median nerve is formed in the axilla by equal contributions of the medial (C5-C7) and lateral (C8-Tl) cords of the brachial plexus.

 SYMPATHETIC SYSTEM - LoveToKnow Article on SYMPATHETIC SYSTEM
The axone-process of the first nerve cell is a myelinated nerve-fibre extending from the spinal cord to the ganglion; it constitutes the pre-ganglionic fibre of the conduction chain.
In the cerebro-spinal nerves the preponderance of the conduction is toward the centres, in the sympathetic system the preponderance of conduction is away from the centres.
The heart receives also nerves from the cranial part of the autonomic system, and the influence of these nerves is antagonistic to that of the sympathetic supply.

Between the two ganghia the accessory part of the eleventh nerve joins the tenth, and it is from this communication that the motor twigs to the pharynx, larynx, alimentary and respiratory tracts are derived, as well as the inhibitory fibres of the heart.
These two nerves are sometimes separate from their first formation in the plexus, and may always be separated easily by the handle of a scalpel, since they are only bound together by loose connectiye tissue to form the great sciatic nerve.

The muscular branches of the sciatic nerve are distributed to the biceps femoris, semitrendinosus, semimembranosus, and to the ischial head of the adductor magnus; the branches of the latter two arise by a common trunk.
Sciatic nerve blockade results in anesthesia of the skin of the posterior aspect of the thigh, hamstrings and biceps muscles, part of hip and knee joint, and entire leg below the knee, with the exception of the skin of the medial aspect of the lower leg.

 Physiatry -- The Practice of Physical Therapy by a Physiatrist
The forceful contraction of the extensor group which enhances the tightening of the fibrous band at the muscular origin and/or forceful contraction of the supinator which narrows the slit through which the nerve penetrates are largely responsible for the resulting radial nerve entrapment phenomenon.
Although the superficial radial nerve may be exposed to direct trauma as a result of its superficial anatomical location, the usual trauma to which it is exposed results from an indirect source.
As it progresses along its course below the elbow joint, the radial nerve passes below the origin of the short radial extensor muscle, which has its origin from a fibrous band stretching from the epicondyle to the deep fascia of the volar aspect of the forearm.

 Types of Muscular Dystrophy - Nervous System Diseases
Muscular dystrophy is a group of inherited diseases that are characterized by weakness and wasting away of muscle tissue, with or without the breakdown of nerve tissue.
There are nine types of muscular dystrophy, but in each type there is an eventual loss of strength, increasing disability, and possible deformity.
Becker dystrophy is often classified as a less severe form of Duchenne dystrophy.

 REFERRED PAIN OF PERIPHERAL NERVE ORIGIN: AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE "MYOFASCIAL PAIN" CONSTRUCT
Chronic forms of muscular rheumatism were attributed to inflammation of a "peculiar" kind affecting the fibrous tissues around joints; this inflammation was found in tendons, bursae, ligaments, fascia, nerve sheaths, muscles, and periosteum (2).
Over the next 50 years, clinicians attempting to unravel the complex nature of muscular rheumatism focused their attention on palpatory findings in and around voluntary muscles, almost to the exclusion of a possible contribution to pain from peripheral nerves or other tissues.
During the 19th century, these conditions were called muscular rheumatism or fibrositis to distinguish them from conditions such as articular rheumatism, which primarily involve joints (1).
